More appointees

Posted By on Fri, Jan 26, 2007 at 8:55 PM

Gov. Beebe has some more, on the jump: An in-the-family appointee to State Police Commission and a a law judge appointee at Workers Comp. (We'd much rather hear that he'd fired a certain Huckabee hack with no respect for the Freedom of Information Act who got parked in a cushy law judge job at Workers Comp shortly before the end of the Royal Huckabee Rule.)



Governor Mike Beebe today named Jane Christenson Harrison to the Arkansas State Police Commission and Chandra Hicks of Little Rock as the newest Administrative Law Judge for the Arkansas Workers’ Compensation Commission.

Christenson, 55, is the publisher of the Newton County Times and holds multiple positions at the Harrison Daily Times .  She has served on the Arkansas State Parks , Recreation and Tourism Commission since 1984, twice being selected as committee chairman.  In addition, Christenson is a past president and current member of the Arkansas Press Association. 

 Christenson’s father, J. E. Dunlap, served more than 22 years on the Arkansas State Police Commission, the initial appointment being made 50 years ago this month.

Hicks, 45, has served the past three years as the attorney for the Workers’ Compensation Commission.  Before that, she was a hearing officer for the Arkansas Appeal Tribunal and the attorney for the Social Security Administration’s Office of Hearing and Appeals in Little Rock .  From 1994 to 1996, Hicks was the agency director for Arkansas Disability Determination Services.
